Beach House Suites by The Don CeSar

St Pete Beach, Tampa and Clearwater/St Pete

Virgin rating

The hotel

The cool little sister to the famous The Don CeSar Hotel, Beach House Suites gives you access to all the luxuries of the main hotel, with the sumptuousness of a more secluded all-suite beach retreat. Taking its inspiration from the sands, this seaside sanctuary offers beach life in abundance, with a shorefront pool, ‘sun and surf’ activities and beach games. Its poolside tiki bar provides sunbathing snacks, but you also get full access to the dining and drinking venues at The Don CeSar Hotel, including its ice cream shop; The Rowe Bar, with coastal cuisine and cocktails served on a deck over sand dunes; and Maritana Grille, voted one of USA Today’s 10 best restaurants.

They have made some changes to there customer service in the past 5 years and its much better then it used to be. Everyone is very curtuis and helpful and does there best to make all requests come true. Its like a Fantisty island with only the good stuff. I have already made my 9 day stay for next year. The transportation shuttle to get around to resturants and other places is fantastic. The best drivers are Raymond and Patrick I have known them for years sence I have been going and they are great guys. The front desk is great also when you need something they do there very best to accomadate you. Beach and pools are fantastic along with the balconey beach view. I does not get any better then this.

We are repeat visitors to the Don Cesar and the Beach House Suites. We love this area of St. Pete Beach and the Gulf - very quiet and well maintained. The rooms all have good views and balconies. When the beach bar is fully staffed, you can get bar and food service on the beach. We were so happy to see Fabian working on the beach again this year… Read more
We are repeat visitors to the Don Cesar and the Beach House Suites. We love this area of St. Pete Beach and the Gulf - very quiet and well maintained. The rooms all have good views and balconies. When the beach bar is fully staffed, you can get bar and food service on the beach. We were so happy to see Fabian working on the beach again this year - we have no idea how he can remember everyone’s name and be so happy working in the hot sand every day, but he makes our day great by taking such good care of our family since we spend all our time on the beach. The property seems to be getting lax and letting a lot of locals use the facilities, so be aware and keep an eye on things - that’s the only reason I’m not giving five stars this review. Read less

My fiance and I booked this place for our anniversary and loved it! Fabian on the beach was so nice and helpful. Amy at the front desk was so welcoming. All the staff we encountered while we were there were so friendly. Property is clean and right on the water. We will definitely be back.

Fabian helped us on the beach and was a lifesaver! I was stung by a stingray and he gave great first aid advice. Despite the inauspicious start of our beach day he made sure we had everything we needed! Charlie at the front desk was very helpful and made checking in a breeze. The shuttle service was quick and easy-to-use.
